Celina Police Department Facebook Posting
The Celina Police Department would like people to be careful what you believe and pass around on social media. There is a post circulating today about a man in Celina be arrested for possessing large amounts of narcotics. This one references the Grand Lake Drug Task Force siezing 57 pounds of fentanyl, MDMA, LSD, cocaine, etc. This post was made to look like it came from a major new organization.
This is completely false and has no merit. People making such posts, even as a joke, should be cautioned against libelous or slanderous posts. Even if not a criminal violation the victims of such posts may seek a civil remedy in court.
